“There is nothing noble in being superior to some other man. The true nobility is in being superior to your previous self.” Probably W.L. Sheldon, US lecturer on ethics (1858 – 1907) rather than Ernest Hemingway.

Latest Barbie Phone?
It is not a joke. Takashi Minato at the Advanced Telecommunications Research Institute International (with input from mobile telephone operator NTT DOCoMo) has come up with a human-shaped mobile phone that has a skin-like outer layer that apparently allows you to feel closer to the person on the other end of the phone. I love technological progress.
